Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I won't be watching it (not been over impressed with Starz's offerings thus far and I didn't like the little that I tried of the work of the writer who wrote the source material) but Charlotte Hope (Myranda, Ramsey Bolton's toxic [show] girlfriend) will be playing Catherine of Aragon in something ca...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

The new(ish) Outlaw King film about Robert the Bruce (which I haven't seen yet) features, as mentioned upthread, Stephen Dillane (Stannis) as the King of England, Clive Russell (the Blackfish) as the Lord of Skye and James Cosmo (Lord Commander Mormont) as a senior member of the Bruce (de Brus) fami...

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

In the run-up to season 5, before it became evident that some of the Mereen plot of ADWD had been excised in the jump from book(s) to show I had thought of Josette Simon as a possibility for the Green Grace. This clip is from 2014, so not right bang up to date. Ms Simon was in a British sci-fi serie...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Chilli, maybe JK Rowling is an Agatha Christie fan and played tribute to her in a way. It's not a secret that GRRM has sometimes given his characters names from works he liked (Samwell Tarley's first name is similar to that of a character in LoTR for example). It's very fleeting but Gilly appears in...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Mirri Maz Duur and her backing group sing an American murder ballad. She doesn't have a bad voice (in my opinion at least). How close she approximates to an American accent I have no idea. https://youtu.be/VZJ8ss-Sue0

On which side of the road do they ride in Westeros?

I was looking at some videos about the day in 1967 in Sweden when the country changed from being a left-hand drive country to a right-hand drive one. It made sense in a way because its neighbours were right-hand drive countries. https://youtu.be/6iIZ5KvmjSk https://youtu.be/Y8DqAIyuR0Q Apparently pe...

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

Having made a faux pas with my Paddies, Tara Fitzgerald (Selyse) is one of a few stars talking about the forthcoming adaptation of Agatha Christie's The ABC Murderers. Her first appearance is at 0.20.

Re: Spot the random GOT actor

I haven't seen this recent BBC show Informer so don't know if it is good or indifferent but Paddy Considine (Balon Greyjoy) is in it - looking very different to his GoT persona. https://youtu.be/3nh-j9jdJXY Patrick Malahide played Balon Greyjoy. Paddy Considine has never been in GoT. Quite right Gr...

Re: Casting the Cast Offs

I mentioned Three Girls before - it was a bleak story but although he didn't play a nice character I thought the actor who played "Daddy" in that drama might suit the part of Strong Belwas if they had cast that character. https://youtu.be/UK6Jc9Jsl7A - quite early on in the clip, the one who tells t...
